Bread and Roses Farm is a 5-acre diversified vegetable farm located in the heart of Westford, VT—in business since spring 2007. We lease two separate parcels that range from sandy, to loamy, to clayey soils, which ensure that we stay on our toes with best farming practices and management techniques.
We are dedicated to sustainable practices such as protecting our waterways, air and soil through crop rotation, cover crops and buffer strips, not using any synthetic pesticides or herbicides, and not using chemically-treated or GMO seeds. We also are committed to minimizing our footprint by keeping our food within a 100-mile radius. Our surplus is donated monthly to the Westford Food Shelf
Vegetables of All Kinds!
We grow practically every vegetable you can find in a seed catalogue. It is our desire to try new things and encourage our eaters to do so as well. We always offer the winners like heirloom tomatoes, juicy red peppers, salad greens both spicy and mild, potatoes, cukes, garlic and much more. We also like to sneak in the interesting and extravagant, such as radicchio, broccoli raab, celeriac and eggplant. If we don’t grow something you want, please tell us. We recently grew spaghetti squash per a CSA member’s request, and fell in love with it ourselves!
CSA Shares & Farmers' Market
The vast majority of our food goes to our CSA . However, we do offer other venues for enjoying our produce. You can find us every Friday afternoon throughout the summer season at the Westford Farmers Market on the Green. We also provide approximately 50 CSA shares for low-income seniors and deliver them weekly to their housing units.
Annual Plant Sale & Winter Shares
Around Memorial Day, look for signs for our Annual Plant Sale when we sell beautiful, hardy starts that are proven to grow well in this area. At the end of the season, we offer a one-time Winter Vegetable Share for CSA members and community members alike. Folks can choose from an array of storage crops such as winter squash, roots, potatoes and garlic and onions.
